These are your pins that are already bringing traffic to your site. These pins are getting noticed on Smart Feed and people are enticed to click and read your blog. 

These are the things that you should focus more on creating your pins


These pins have a great headline that entices people to learn more about your content.


The fonts and colors are easy to read and visible on mobile. Bigger fonts work best to highlight powerful words and capture people's attention.

You have a compelling image that catches your reader’s eyes. Images should be close up and clear. 


Is it vertical? Is it longer than most of your pins? Use the same pin size when you create pins.


Using keywords on Pin description is a great way to be found on Pinterest. Take this opportunity as well to get people's interest to click and read your content.

Check out the stats of the pin to better understand the popularity of the pin. How many clicks and repins it got since the first time it appeared on Pinterest. It gives you a more in-depth analysis of how a specific pin performs.

Two simple tricks to increase click-through 

1. Look for your top clicked pins on Pinterest and pin them often. 
Since these pins are your top performing pins, give them the boost they need to go viral by consistently pinning them.

UPDATE: Pinterest is discouraging creatives to re-pin their own pins. Make sure that you only re-pin a version of your pin that someone else's pinned from notifications, news feed or the following tab.

2. Use the same headline on your top clicked pins. 
Create similar pin design replicating your top pins. Study your most clicked pins, why people are clicking on these pins. Is it because of the fonts? Did you use arrows, shapes and call to action? Do the same with your new pins.

You can also use the same headline of your winning pins and make different versions of that pin. Pre-made pin templates will help you make pins quickly. 

That is how you find your TOP PINS on Pinterest. These pins have a high engagement already that Pinterest likes. Why not trigger them to go viral by manually pinning them or scheduling them on Tailwind. The idea is to consistently circulate your top converting pins on Pinterest.
